Hibco custom plastics

Our History

Hibco Foam Plastics was incorporated in 1959 as three primary investors, C.B. Hughes, J.W. Irvin, and S.A. Bell, saw the future importance of fabricating Dow Brand foam for the floral industry. This focus expanded in 1979 when Dan Pavlansky entered the business and started to concentrate more in the area of cushion packaging. Dan had been a Product Manager with the Dow Chemical Company and understood the technical nature of many complex packaging solutions.

The sales volumes doubled when Dan took over, and the company moved from its 14,000 sq. ft. building to a 120,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and warehouse space that the company operates from today.

Having developed a strong management team during the ’80s and ’90s, Dan, as Chairman of the Board, took on more of a consultative role, and his presence, leadership, and values are all still going strong today!

Mark, Keith, and Chris Pavlansky, three of Dan’s five sons, manage the sales, manufacturing, and day-to-day operations at Hibco. The three brothers, all with engineering backgrounds, navigated to the company through the tough economic times of the Great Recession, and the organization is thriving today as it celebrates 60 years!

Our Mission & Commitment

Hibco Foam Plastics was founded on the principles of providing quality service and products while continuing to first seek the Kingdom of God.

Hibco Foam Plastics pledges to you that you will receive the highest quality, best-engineered products available at the most economical cost. We work very hard to ensure that your lead-time is often a fraction of “standard” lead times, and we are committed to doing whatever it takes to satisfy your needs. Whether it is stocking your parts in our 120,000 square feet of facilities, delivering them via our own fleet of trucks, designing them on our Pro/Engineering CAD system, or getting you quick and accurate answers from our customer service personnel, Hibco is dedicated to meeting all of your needs.

After 60 years in business, you can trust in knowing that we have the technological experience and ingenuity to help your ideas take shape.

Environmental Stewardship

At Hibco, we strive to be stewards of what we have been given, so we have found ways to recycle polyethylene, flexible urethane, and cross-linked polyethylene products. We encourage others to do the same. If you’re looking for foam recycling options, let us know.
